im looking for low volume sticks, for church so that we don't have to play with the drum shield.

I hate those things but they do serve a useful purpose.

rutes/hotrods etc can be useful, but you'll lose the hats & ride and need to mic them in most cases. They also don't feel like sticks.

Our drummer mostly plays with I want to say 7b's, but honestly, the real key to playing without a shield is feel & restraint on the drummers part.

I know that he tells me if he's not playing often he'll sacrifice feel (and lower volumes) to maintain time, which is admittedly important, but honestly, I've dealt with drummers who couldn't play a controllable volume with brushes- it's so much the drummer's playing that matters, the stick not as much.
